Error- This configuration section cannot be used at this path.This happens when the section is locked at a parent level.

Recently I installed Windows 10 and started developing application in MVC5. I hosted my application in IIS, but it was throwing below error while accessing URL.

Error -

This configuration section cannot be used at this path. This happens when the section is locked at a parent level. Locking is either by default (overrideModeDefault="Deny"), or set explicitly by a location tag with overrideMode="Deny" or the legacy allowOverride="false".  

 This configuration section cannot be used at this path. This happens when the section is locked at a parent level.

I searched this issue over internet and found the solution.
  • Go to Program and Features 
  • Click on Turn Windows Features on or off
  • Select Internet Information Services
  • Select World Wide Web Services
  • Select Application Development Features
  • Check all except CGI, ASP and few more as shown in below screen shot.

This solution work for me.
